Tactics Tuesday: Playing Kings of War Competitively

In our latest Tactics Tuesday article, Kings of War Rules Committee member and tournament legend Dan King gives some guidance to playing Kings of War competitively against a new opponent. So you rock up to a game, this could be at your local club/shop or even at a tournament. You’ve never played your opponent before and you have no idea what their army does! What do you do? Welcome and Armies Well first up, be polite and friendly, say hello, and ask where they’re from, if they play much etc. A bit of chit-chat breaks the ice. Offer them a drink too, I personally find Mead to be an excellent choice, but that’s up to you. Ok, next up ask to go through each other’s armies, give your opponent a copy of your list (this is important), then offer to do yours first. Explain what each unit is and what it does, and if it has any Artefacts. It’s one thing being given a list, it’s completely different going through the army, as this helps cement who has what etc. It’s not really fun or fair if you beat an opponent because your unit has the Brew of Haste and [...]

Kings of War Summer Campaign: Introduction to the Undead

In our continuing series, Hunter Bulkeley introduces you to the Kings of War factions taking part in the Edge of the Abyss summer campaign. Today, he focuses on the decaying Undead. Who are the Undead? Like so much of magic, the origins of necromancy predate existing records. Mages debate whether it existed during the time of Celestians or an unnamed Wicked One created the foul art during the God War. Some even whisper that necromancy may predate the Celestians, but such talk is quickly silenced with sharp looks. Wherever it originated, necromancy has plagued Mantica for far too long. Ambitious men use its power to summon vast armies of the fallen and those who fear death turn butcher their souls to prolong their lives. At a base level, necromancy pulls souls from the aether, brutally shoving them into empty vessels to give them some semblance of life. The soul is forced to watch the horrors its body commits in pursuit of the necromancer’s black designs. Even after some desperate mortal manages to destroy the undead, the soul frequently cannot return to the aether, and it remains trapped in Mantica, captured forever in a tormented purgatory. In facts, many questing paladins [...]

Event Report: American Team Championships 2017

July 15th-16th saw the second annual American Team Championship put on by Mantic Games and Dicehead Games in Chattanooga, TN.  6 teams of 3 players competed for the title of the American Team Champion. The basic formula for the ATC is a team of 3 player play individual games and their total score determines the winner. This years format was a little different from last years.  This time around each team member was given a coin denoting whether they were Captain, Lieutenant, or Ensign.  Once both teams chose their roles, their coins were revealed.  Games were decided on Capt. vs Capt., Lt. vs Lt., and Ens vs Ens. These roles were decided at the beginning of every round.  While teams could play another team again the players might not necessarily play the same opponent. Round 1 saw the Georgia Boys playing against Team McFlurry and the Extra Oreos.  Georgia Boys played Salamanders and 2 Dwarf armies.  Team McFlurry consisted of Elves, Undead and Basileans.  On the next group of tables, Rotgut Manglers played against Team Fun and Games.  Rotgut Manglers were made up of Abyssals, Abyssal Dwarfs and Empire of Dust.  Team Fun and Games ran Abyssal Dwarfs, Undead, and [...]

Kings of War Summer Campaign: Introduction to the Orcs

In our continuing series, Hunter Bulkeley introduces you to the Kings of War factions taking part in the Edge of the Abyss summer campaign. Today, he focuses on the brutal Orcs. Who are the Orcs? While Oskan sought to lure the Noble Races from the Shining Ones side in the God War, Garkan the Black decided on a more direct approach. With flame, iron, and black magic, Garkan reforged souls into new, terrifying shapes. Nine-hundred days after beginning his task, Garkan released his creation into the world. He created the Orcs for one purpose, to make war on all of Mantica, and they have never faltered in this task. War consumes every instant of an Orcs life. Garkan ensured it would be so for he made peace physically painful to an Orc. If an Orc goes too long without conflict, the curse will take its toll. Their insides will burn, their thoughts become confused with one word pounding in the backs of their skull, repeated with each fall of Garkan’s hammer onto the Orc’s soul, “Destroy.” An Orc can never truly know peace. Driven by this curse, the Orcs have spread far and wide since the God War. Their tenacity [...]

Kings of War Summer Campaign: Introduction to the Goblins

In our continuing series, Hunter Bulkeley introduces you to the Kings of War factions taking part in the Edge of the Abyss summer campaign. Today, he focuses on Rob’s favourite army, the Goblins. Who are the Goblins? Though no one knows quite where the Goblins came from, it is believed to be from Garkan the Black not knowing what to do with the scraps left over from creating the Orcs. Their appearance as slaves in Orc armies and skill at crafting deadly weapons out of scraps seem to support this theory. Whatever their origin, Goblins are tenacious little creatures with snot green skin and snickering smiles as if the whole world were a practical joke. By and large, the Goblin races are found in slave pits. The Orcs drive them before their armies as cannon fodder. The Abyssal Dwarfs use them to grease the wheels of their terrible forges. Humans mostly round them up and chop of their heads, “cleansing the country side” as they call it. Some Goblins, however, manage to escape the fate of their brethren. Many tunnel beneath the earth, building whole kingdoms and societies within the dark places of the world. As long as they are [...]

Community Spotlight: Quickly Painting an Asterian Force

As part of his Tamiya Clear Addicts Anonymous scheme, Rob explains how he painted an Asterian force in record time. In between painting units for my Kings of War Dwarf army, I decided that I needed to tackle a force for Warpath/Firefight. Typically I’ve been more of a fantasy player in the past and my rudimentary painting skills have involved lots of Army Painter washes to make things actually look half decent. It’s basically ‘bottled talent’. However, when it came to sci-fi, it quickly became apparent that the hard lines and hi-tech armour didn’t always suit the wash technique. Initially I picked an Enforcer army (mainly due to the awesome Striders… seriously, look at the Ajax Strider and tell me you don’t want to do that army… shout it at the screen, if needs be) and got cracking. After a lot of (frankly quite needless) colour experimentation with red, blue and orange, I eventually opted for the colour scheme above. I was fairly happy with the finished result but the problem was it took me quite a while to get the edging on the armour and I’m a very impatient painter/gamer. You see I wanted to get an army on [...]

Kings of War Summer Campaign: Introduction to the Abyssal Dwarfs

In our continuing series, Hunter Bulkeley introduces you to the Kings of War factions taking part in the Edge of the Abyss summer campaign. Today, he focuses on the vicious Abyssal Dwarfs. Who are the Abyssal Dwarfs? In a similar way to how the Celestians split into two aspects, one its virtues taken to the extreme, the other its vices, the Dwarfs are divided between the Imperial or Free Dwarfs and the Abyssal Dwarfs. When Domivar split the world, forming the Abyss and sealing away the twenty-seven Wicked Ones, some Dwarfen holds dwelt in the area. In their greedy pursuit of wealth, these Dwarfs dug too deep, their mines brushing up against that twisted prison. The tainted magic of the Wicked Ones warped these dwarfs, emphasising their worst vices. Where once they had been a loyal and honest people, they became deceitful, stabbing each other in the back in their pursuit of power and wealth. Where once the dwarfs had pursued gold out of a desire to create beauty, they now seek it purely out of greed. The Abyssal Dwarfs still dwell in the lands that first corrupted their people, now known as Tragar. While there are many holds scattered [...]

Tactics Tuesday: How to Build an Effective Gang in The Walking Dead

In today’s Tactics Tuesday, Joe Neet gives you some advice to building an alternative gang of Survivors in The Walking Dead: All Out War. Food. Shelter. Weapons. These are the key elements to surviving in the Walker infested world of The Walking Dead: All Out War. As you encounter other groups and more walkers your group of survivors must be up for anything, and having the right mix of characters is key. Synergy is the name of the game in my opinion, and matching the types of characters you want to use to your play style is very important. For me play a game is all about the objective or scenario. Yes, it is fantastic to try and wipe your opposition out in glorious combat, but in All Out War sometimes combat or shooting is not the best way forward. First you must pick a leader, normally I like to go with a Runner or Tactician, this allows me to take more of those character types in my group (normally only have of the models in a group can be of the same type). It’s normal for most players to want to have Rick Grimes, Ezekiel or Negan to lead [...]
